One of the new features added into RPG Maker VX Ace are Traits. This system allows for an even deeper level of customization amongst actors, classes, equipment, enemies, skills, items, and states. Functions can range from changing resistances to adding skills and states to the target in battle.

TraitsEdit

The following traits applies to the Actors, Class, Weapons, Armors, Enemies, and States Tabs

Page 1: Resistance SettingsEdit

  1. Element Rates
    1. Element Rates replaces the long standing Letter Grades of previous RPG Makers, giving a more dynamic control over resistances and weaknesses to particular elements. Not adding the trait to the target defaults into a normal (100%) resistance to the element.
    2. Values can range from 0% to 1000% with values under 100% increasing resistance and vice versa for the latter.
  2. Debuff Rates
    1. Functions much like Element Rates but only affects the built in Debuff Effects.
  3. State Rates
    1. State Rates function exactly like Element Rates with the only difference of it being that it applies to states and not elements.
  4. State Immunity
    1. As the name suggest State Immunity applies immunity to the selected State and likely overrides any weaknesses or resistance settings applied by State Rates. (Unsure at this moment, clarification would be appreciated)
